7th Day Brewery Brewer

On the first day, Mike Beresford Jones took up homebrewing because there was a dearth of locally made craft lagers. He began developing a recipe for a quality pilsner, and a handful of local dads who met through their children’s sport would join him each week to drink it in his garage at Curl Curl,…

Philter Brewing Brewer

Few breweries have burst onto the craft beer scene quite as triumphantly as Philter. A mere four months into existence, with only two beers to their name, the brewing company took home one of the most coveted titles in Australian beer – Champion Pale Ale at the 2017 Craft Beer Awards. It turned out…

Batch Brewing Co Brighter Future, La Sfida & In A Pickle Beer

If I tried to think of a satirical "Batch doing Batch things" release, I reckon I’d struggle to come up with a better trio than what we have here. I mean this in the fondest way possible, of course. Batch’s eclectic mix of invented styles, classics and GABS-worthy silliness is exactly why they’re…

Otherside Brewing Co Headliner 2020, DDH Sabro Oat Cream IPA, Triple Vinyl & Mango Raspberry Slurpee Sour Beer

Released with ten days of each other, this quartet showcases not only the scope of Otherside’s brew schedule but also acts as a snapshot of 2020’s pointy end beer zeitgeist. They’d also work quite well at some sort of beer degustation, if that was possible. Kicking off with the latest Creative…

BentSpoke Brewing Co Cans Beer

A year ago, BentSpoke announced plans to open a second, larger brewery it its hometown of Canberra. Part of the plan for the second site was to start packaging their beers. And now they are, with Barley Griffin and Crankshaft IPA the first two beers to receive tinnie treatment. For those who've come…

Newstead & BrewCult Milk & Two Pineapples Beer

Another collaboration from Newstead Brewing and one that is kind of a tribute to the collaborator too. In hooking up with Hendo from BrewCult, they've offered a nod and a wink to one of his past glories, the GABS People's Choice winner from 2015: Milk & Two Sugars. Where that was an espresso'd and lactosed…

NZ Hops 2022: Molly Rose & Sailors Grave Beer

**Scroll down for links to more NZ Hops beers** There's a risk inherent in a project like this – inviting a stack of brewers to create beers showcasing hops first and foremost – that you'll end up with a parade of IPAs. You can also assume that when it comes to Molly Rose they'll follow a different…

Sailors Grave Squid vs Whale V & Grapefruit & Chrysanthemum Flower Ale Beer

It's fair to say that a beer loaded with a "maelstrom of hops" that weighs in at 7 percent ABV isn't the sort instantly associated with Sailors Grave, yet **Squid vs Whale** has proven so popular it's now up to its fifth edition. V comes in a smaller can than its predecessors, but packs no less character.…

Sailors Grave Brewing Rite & Deep Into The Forest Beer

Sailors Grave’s Deckhand is the Orbost brewery’s membership club which sees them ship a dozen beers every couple of much to their thirsty fans, or salty seadogs as they're occasionally known. It typically includes a mix of core range beers, limited releases and new beers and included in August's…

One Drop Brewing The Hop King & Stratascope Beer

Apparently, all it took to make us all simultaneously watch a documentary about an eccentric mullet-wearing, gun-toting, tiger-owning, alleged murderer was a global pandemic. Who’d have known? Now, what will it take to make you all simultaneously try this beer? Right from the start, **The Hop…

Sailors Grave Black & Blue & Nitro Honey Bush Braggot Beer

I'm the sort of person so lacking in maturity that, upon meeting someone who told me their mother hailed from Malta at the weekend, I couldn't help but rehash one of the awful jokes my dad used to have on repeat in my youth – the one that ends with the line: "Poke them in the eyes." As such, I seem…

Blackman's Brewery Just Another IPA: Citra & Motueka Beer

Blackman’s Same Day IPA have long championed hops and freshness but in 2022, the super-fresh beer drop has been used to showcase unusual pairings too. Just in case you’ve missed the long-running series: as the name suggests, Same Day IPA sees the Victorian brewery package an IPA very early in the…

Brew & A: Andrew Robson of The Lord News

When the Lord Nelson took out Champion Draught Beer at the Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show earlier this month, it wasn't just one of Australia's pioneering brewpubs that enjoyed the accolade. As The Lord's founder Blair Hayden was quick to point out, Nelspresso Brown Ale's success was…

Brew & A: Pizey News

Not only has Bootleg Brewery been around longer than almost every other microbrewery in Australia, it's done a remarkable job of holding onto its brewers for a long time. Past head brewer Michael "Brookesy" Brookes was there a decade and a half and the man that stepped into his shoes has now been…

Brew & A: Stu Grant News

  In Tasmania’s busy beer market, gypsy outfit Ocho has managed to stand out from the crowd since launching. Stu Grant released the first beers under the Ocho banner shortly after he started brewing at Van Diemen at the end of 2015, selling direct to customers via the brewing…

Brew & A: Justin Corbitt News

Melbourne brewery Hawkers is approaching the midway point of a burst of barrel aged releases that could well be the densest yet seen in Australia. Following a triplet of aquavit-ified Wheat Wines, a bourbon barrel aged Old Ale left the brewery this week and there are various imperial stouts to come,…

Brew & A: Ken Friend News

Ken Friend is every bit as chirpy, chatty and kind-hearted as you might expect from someone with such a surname. But don’t see his easy smile and mistake him for a passive person who lets the world push him around. Maybe 22 years in the Air Force shaped him into a determined go-getter with an eye…

Brew & A: Keegan Steinbacher News

Since the launch of their first beers at their panoramic brewery home at Cape Naturaliste in South West WA almost a decade ago, Eagle Bay Brewing have established themselves as a key player in the Western Australian brewing scene.  Next year sees the family-run operation mark ten years…

Brew & A: Morrison Brewery News

There's around 20 breweries and brewing companies that call Tasmania home today. Yet most of them have less than a year or two under their belts, making Launceston based Morrison Brewery something of an elder statesman on the scene. This week sees the family run business turn five, with celebrations…

Brew & A: Sam Clayman News

“Brewers are essentially just glorified janitors who farm yeast on the side.” Studying enzyme function relating to metabolism in snails. It doesn’t sound like an obvious precursor to brewing. But for Sam Clayman, head brewer at All Hands Brewing House, it was exactly that. Sam started homebrewing…

Brew & A: Frenchies' Vince de Soyres News

Vince De Soyres has always done things a bit differently to those around him. Growing up near Paris with a German mum and French dad, his upbringing was heavily influenced by his mother’s homeland. “I always felt like I didn’t have the same cultural beacons as my friends: different music, different…

Brew & A: Tim Miller News

Brew & A: Thirsty Crow News

Brew & A: Eden Pink News

When Eden Pink first started working at Prancing Pony around six years ago, becoming a brewer wasn't front-and-centre of the 19-year-old's mind. Sure, she loved beer but as a student at the time Eden regarded the front-of-house job as a fun way to combine her love of working with beer and people…

Brew & A: Sow & Piglets News

Sow & Piglets have always done things a little differently. For one, how many of the 600-plus active brewing companies in Australia started out in a hostel? And how many of them maintain a focus on traditional German beer styles? Even the origin story is rather unlikely.  Marion Klink and John…

Brew & A: Chase Saraiva – Wildflower News

Chase Saraiva’s journey to become head brewer of Sydney’s Wildflower Brewing and Blending is a tale as old as time.

Brew & A: Luigi Mensi News

If you were going to grow a brewer in a lab, you could do a lot worse than using Luigi Mensi as a template. A lifetime of obtaining seemingly unrelated skills, lucky coincidences and unceasing hard work aside, it was a chance decision to try to make some mead while in the midst of studying chemistry…

Brew & A: Jum Ryan News

It’s hard to think of too many places you can work as a brewer that are as distinct from one another as Singapore and Alice Springs. But that relocation is one made recently by Jum Ryan when he became Alice Springs Brewing Co's head brewer after leading brewing for Little Creatures in both Singapore…

Brew & A: Stuart Taylor of Homestead News
